    It's a 50mm body lift and 110mm suspension lift.

    Articulation is up to crap.

    Hate to say it but a 5 inch or even 4 inch long arm lift kit from the US would be far superior.

    50mm body, 60mm suspension and another 50mm gained by the tyres. The 60mm is still close to a normal off road suspension upgrade as most give 40-50mm or so. The body lift makes it possible to have those crazy 35 inch tyres.

    I have to say I like it, even if not completely practical.

    These are proper suspension kits.

    Apart from looking cool, there is no point in lifting a vehicle super high. All it does is kill your stability and offroad ability.
